›KOSMICA Sound Night
KOSMICA is changing its format to bridge Earth and space through art and other cultural experiments out of this world. Our next gathering for the cosmically curious, is a sound night and will take place in London on Friday 7 December 2012. The evening will bring together artists that have explored the sounds and sonification of space and our planet.
Yuri Suzuki - a sound artist, designer and electronic musician who produces work that explores the realms of sound through exquisitely designed pieces. Yuri will present The Sound of the Earth, a spherical record project, the grooves representing the outlines of the geographic land mass. Each country on the disc is engraved with a different sound, as the needle passes over it plays field recordings collected by Yuri Suzuki from around the world over the course of four years; traditional folk music, national anthems, popular music and spoken word broadcasts.
Honor Harger - a curator and artist from New Zealand. Harger has a particular interest in artistic uses of new technologies. She's the director of Lighthouse, an arts agency in Brighton, UK. Her artistic practice is produced under the name r a d i o q u a l i a together with collaborator Adam Hyde. One of their main projects is Radio Astronomy, a radio station broadcasting sounds from space.
Kaffe Mathews - Since 1990 Kaffe has been making and performing new electro-acoustic music worldwide with a variety of things and places such as violin, theremin, Scottish weather, desert stretched wires, NASA scientists, melting ice in Quebec and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Currently she is completing three Star Chairs and album for ‘Yird, Muin, Starn,’ a vital spark collaboration with Mandy McIntosh, in the Galloway Forest, Scotland.
